Advanced gastric and esophageal cancers are associated with poor outcomes. However, as knowledge of disease biology improves, treatment options are increasing. Genomic profiling has identified targetable mutations or biomarkers, such as HER2. Immunotherapies such as checkpoint inhibitors may be approved for gastrointestinal malignancies in the very near future. This program provides an overview of clinical trials, new treatment options, as well as practical clinical information regarding diagnosis, staging, monitoring, and managing side effects to treatment, in order to ameliorate clinical confidence and patient outcomes.
